Sasquatch! Festival consistently sets the tone for festival season every year, taking place over Memorial Day weekend at The Gorge in Washington and featuring headliners ranging from Sleater-Kinney to Kendrick Lamar. For most of us at Paste, though, Sasquatch! is a long way from home, so we were lucky that this year, our friends Mr. and Mrs. Morris opened up their home right down the street from the festival and made us (and some of our favorite artists) feel like family.
Mother Mother was the first band to wander into our backyard oasis, and while these guys have certainly played some massive stages—the Canadian band was nominated for three JUNO Awards this year, including group of the year—they seemed just as comfortable stripping things down for a more unplugged performance. Thanks to the kind folks at Squarespace, we caught the unique performance on video. we Check out their hit number “Monkey Tree” in the player above, and watch videos for “Reaper Man” and “Get Out The Way” below.
